As part of its Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund award, Birkbeck, University of London wishes to appoint three career development fellows for up to three years to be supported in developing preliminary data and applications for longer term fellowships. We will be looking for postdoctoral candidates with potential for a successful academic career within the broadest remit of the Wellcome Trust.
At least one post will be in the medical humanities and social sciences as defined by the Wellcome Trust. This could be based in any department in the college but particular strengths are medical history within the Department of History, Classics and Archaeology and medical humanities within the Departments of English, History of Art, and Psychosocial Studies, coordinated by the Birkbeck Centre for Medical Humanities. The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities bridges a very broad range of interdisciplinary research in the humanities.
This post is part-time or full time, and fixed term for three years full-time equivalent or until September 2021, whichever is earlier.
